  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup sherry vinegar
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 Cup onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper

  • 1 fillet parrotfish (lorong isda) about 170 grams
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • In a pan over medium heat, sweat onions along with cayenne pepper.
  • Add clams then turn up heat to high. Deglaze with beer.

  • Add cubed butter to sauce and mix; add green onions. Set aside and keep warm.
  • In another pan over medium heat, sear parrot fish in canola oil until golden brown on one side. Turn fish over, add remaining butter, and baste fish until cooked to medium. Pour in calamansi juice.
  • To assemble, place a little tomato purée on a plate. Place fish on top, followed by clam jus. Arrange clams and longganisa around fish. Garnish with cilantro.
